Regent’s Park is 166 hectares of mainly open parkland that enjoys a wide range of facilities including gardens, a lake with a heronry, waterfowl, a boating area, sports pitches & children’s playgrounds. London Zoo also is housed within the park. The architecture is stunning & in the finest Regency style. The Prince Regent’s designer John Nash created a masterpiece with his Gloucester Gate, Royal Crescent & Cumberland, Chester, Cambridge & Hanover terraces. A hub for international study, The European Business School, American College in London & Webster Graduate School are located near the park as is Baker Street station & the lovely Primrose Hill.
No writer has evoked Regent’s Park more lovingly than Elizabeth Bowen who wrote ‘I had always placed this park among the most civilised scenes on earth’. Of Queen Mary’s Gardens local resident & literary legend Sylvia Plath wrote “A sea of dreams washes the edge of my green island … in the centre of the garden named after Queen Mary.”
REGENT’S PARK PROPERTY – Perched between Camden Town, Euston, Marylebone, Primrose Hill & Lords Cricket Ground, Regents Park is a wonderful circle around which some of the nicest apartments in London are to be found. There are of course houses in Regents Park, but these are Crown Estate lands & any actual houses here run into the 9 figure category. Houses in Park Square Gardens, Park Square Mews and other areas are possible to find, but extraordinarily desirable with price tags & short lease lengths to match.
Around the edge of the park are mansion blocks of great size with lovely aspects looking out over the greenery of the park itself. In any of these blocks around the Outer Circle in Cumberland & Chester terrace, apartments are extremely desirable & accommodating for the young professionals & well-heeled they’re aimed at.
